I have had this product for an extremely long time and I always come back to it (convenient packaging in the shower vs. your average oil). By a long time, I mean like over a year and I haven't even used a fourth of the bottle. I have highly porous hair and it sucks us everything. Needless to say, I am an avid oil sealer. I always use this elixir to seal over my leave in. I tried it on dry hair for the first time today and my hair doesn't look greasy at all. It kind of smoothed over the stray hairs of my curls and made them shiny. I also haven't had any pump issues but I would recommend spraying it in your hands just so you can really make sure you distribute properly and get every last strand sealed over. It also has a nice smell and understandable ingredient list (not to mention it's genuinely cg and the closest thing to a coned up serum I'll ever put near my hair lol).
I'm still getting to "know" this product. So far I love it as a sealant after conditioning and refreshing.
For me, this elixir works best when applied to wet hair as a sealant. When I use heat, I apply a leave-in, this elixir, a styler, then roller-set my hair and dry on high heat. I have fine-medium texture so my hair only needs a very small amount otherwise, it can be greasy. My roller set comes out so soft and shiny. When I wash and go, I apply a leave-in, this elixir, then blow dry with warm air. Once again, my hair comes out soft and shiny. Once I sprayed this on dry hair. It was like the elixir didn't have any place to go or anything to do; so I ended up with oil sheen bubbles on my hair. So not cute.
I simply adore this product! I use it in my L.C.O. (liquid, creme, oil) method. I mixed a small amount of the elixir with water & spritz my hair. Then I use the Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Transitioning Milk as my creme. Lastly, I finish up with the elixir as my sealant. My hair never so moisturized!
I don't know what went wrong with this product. I used it as recommended and my head was itching so bad I had to wash my hair twice. I gave it to my mom and it broke her face out and she needed to trow out her bed pillows, for fear it was let in the pillow. I have really porous hair and my hair was left greasy.
This product just does not penetrate my low porosity hair. It left it feeling greasy even though i only used about half a pump for my whole entire head not even daring to go near my roots with this. It only made it feeling slightly softer.
I was trying to revisit moisturizing and sealing (using this product to seal) but my hair is low porosity so I should've known this wouldn't work for me. First of all the pump makes this so hard to spray so I was already turned off by that. Second, the smell is horrid. Some people might like it but I hate the smell of shea butter and SM's yellow line so anything in this line makes me want to gag. Third, if I get any on my skin it becomes very irritated. I had the worst breakouts of my life while using this. All around, this product was the devil for me.
I love this. It smells great. I love the spray bottle. It doesn't make a mess. It seals and smells great. It doesn't add too much shine. But every good product.
This stuff is amazing. I am a natural that wears her hair straight which means I need my hair to be very moisturized this is it. I just parted my hair and sprayed it in sections my hair was sooooo smooth, felt like silk. And lastly, it cut the frizz. Oh smells great to kinda like a perfume. All the SheaMoisture products I have tried I give 5 curls. A must have!
Used as a sealer, I feel it does it work. I love how natural it is, it lasts for ages! I bought the bottle in january 2013 and still have it , and I used this every single day! of course just a pchiit or two :D
I use this as a sealer and/or for the ends of my hair. Especially when I use it for my ends, my curls feel so shiny. I love that it is actually an oil. It has argan oil (and many others), but no cones! It almost feels like nothing is on your hands which shows how light it really is. This is a perfect product for the summer.
This product works well on my hair both curly and when I roller set - I spray it in my palms 2x and then apply concentrating on ends. Great smell as well and I feel like my hair just soaks up the goodness. I used it daily without feeling like I had build up or oiliness.
I love using this product to seal while styling. It smells great and makes my hair feel very soft after each use. It’s not too bad to use daily on your hair as well and is very easy to apply since it’s in a spray bottle. A little goes a long way with this product. Very good to use on low porosity hair as this is very light weight.
I like this oil mix. It works well for my fine hair. It's good as a sealant and my hair actually absorbs it. Smells good too.
This works great when I am wrapping my roller set for the night. Light spray, but glosses my hair up and is not heavy at all. Can be used for a couple days in a row to refresh your hairstyle. I love it!
I use this as a sealer after styling, keeps hair shiny and soft. The trick is not to use too much. I have fine hair and spray it in my palm, rub palms together then lightly smooth over hair. My hair is about 2 inches below my shoulders and I use about 3 pumps of spray.
nothing special. like the person below said it's just oil in a bottle. the pump is terrible though. if you're looking for some spray oil then I would just buy something inexpensive and just put it in a spray bottle. not worth the $10. definitely won't purchase this again.
This is really just oil in a bottle. A number of oils. I do, however, love the bottle and the way the mist comes out. I find it very useful when I have my hair braided to mist my scalp but on my hair when it is in a style? It doesn't do anything as far as shine for me and it leaves my hair greasy.
Too greasy for thin, fine 4a hair. Too slick but, I will try it as a possible hot oil treatment and see how it works!
I should have known my hair wouldn't like this since it doesn't tolerate oils very well. I didn't use much of this at all, and my hair still looked like a greasy mess. And it was so hard to get out of my hair since I hate using harsh shampoos. I did however have to use sulfates to get this out.
I use this product as a scalp massage oil before co-washing or shampooing. Some times I leave it overnight. I like it, it provides emollients and nutrition. Good stuff
